You think mere mortals are going to find startup scripts, not to mention
xrandr, easier to figure out than config files? Plus, in my experience, there
are far too many different script file names and locations among various
distros than X config files and locations. Not to say .config file setup is
easy, because it's not, but to me they're the lesser evil.
